I'm a bit worried about this.

Slick, even if you do nice things, doesn't mean 'Nique owes you anything! If Slick tries to "buy" 'Nique's love with all those glitters, I'm going to be really disappoint. But if he ends up becoming a better person, and if she JUST HAPPENS to like the person he's become, then it might be ok.

Mr. Ishida, you're pushing a fine line there. Tread carefully.

I am delighted Slick is moving. I don't care in what direction, just some kind of development is great!

I do think it is possible for this to end well for Slick. Maybe marching headlong into problematic behavior will help him realize what it looks like.

Man, this just disturbs the heck out of me. Someone get those glasses away from him!

This is so freaking awesome.
I wonder if Slick is going to rob the angels, now?
'Cause otherwise I don't see how he could do enough good to get that many sparkles without it rubbing off on him.

All I can say is that the glasses have been there for quite awhile but i never saw this coming :-0.

What scares me is the question of his intent. Slicks intention is not really to be a nice person- he just wants to be percieved as one. If Nique cannot see through his motivations, this gets into troubling territory- if she does, then she will have reason to not dislike but really hate him. it seems this must end badly

If this was a traditional romantic comedy, all would be forgiven

I would guess that the outcome would be much more honest but i am a bit terrified of the implications}

maybe it will turn out well- but it seems like it would get pretty bad first

it seems as if Slick has already shown this type of behavior before, trying to get cookies for good behavior. but this is on a much different scale

man i really hope eventually, once tat's accomplished all the shit he wants to with this newly developing plot bs, that this all ends in 1) slick and nique being friends again but also 2) slick finally realizating that friendship isnt some sort of dinky consolation prize, friendship is just as valuable as romance/sex, and actually moves on from nique, and accepts the fact that she doesnt wish to be in a relationship with him beyond purely platonic friendship

its a lot to hope for and to be quite honest im not actually putting my faith in any of those things happening, at least any time soon, given tat's track record, but man, i love slick, and i loved the friendship he used to share with nique, but ive always really hated his constant attempts at convincing her to be in a relationship of non-platonic status when that just isnt what she wants

and i just really want this to go somewhere that wont make me uncomfortable and/or unhappy


If you go back in the strip's history there are many examples that Monique was not against the idea completely, but that Slick fouled up opportunities, and let's not forget the strip that essentially said they were created by God himself for each other.


Ultimately, however, Tat doesn't use some of his characters for character development anymore, but as foils for concepts, and I don't think he has a replacement for Slick.

That's why I've been a bit unhappy with what's happened to Slick over the last few years. Unless Tat can find someone else to take his place, he won't be permitted to advance very far.

The panel where Slick is reaching out like you do when you say hi to someone made me pretty sadface.

I'm hoping that there was a significance in the tag falling off 'Nique. In that perhaps, once, had Slick achieved World Peace and everything, he might have got somewhere. But now? 'Nique's tag has come off. She doesn't have one now. She's beyond his efforts to "purchase" with glitter points.

And what's caused the tag to come off? Well, she's been sitting on that bench until it got dark, thinking about the day she spent with Abby...

That's my theory, anyway, and I'm sticking to it.

I'm finding this hard to understand. What is up with his heart? It's the swiss army knife of emotions. Can it directly affect him? because that heart has been through a lot, yet he doesn't look like he's changed at all.
Cupid shot his heart, nothing happened.
He (or was it Sleaze?) used his heart as payment for porn, nothing happened.
Someone to a freakin' sledgehammer to the thing. nothing happened.
It was frozen, last time I saw it, now it's a piggy bank?

Is that heart even his any more? Damn, I wish I could find out. I don't like leaving questions unanswered...

This is a perfect setup! Unless this ends up being yet another of those moments where the two walk out on eachother feeling frustrated at the lack of understanding, there will be no way for 'Nique to open Slick's eyes but to remove those damned glasses. Along with that, the long awaited reveal of Slick's eyes!

More on this when it develops, in about six months.

I am curious what would be happening to Sleaze with Slick lenses. He seems not hurry to take theirs back.

Maybe they are the same lenses after all. Maybe Slick's ones are helping him in his distopic world.

Any theory?

Only theories.

With Slick in possession of Those Fucking Glasses and devolving into a jackass without any more of Sleaze's help, Sleaze wanders through Sinfest's mirror-world and all the destruction he's caused there. Without Those Fucking Glasses, he sees all the things he's done clearly, and has to live with all the shit he's caused, gets introspective about the results of his worldview and starts to trend toward decency.

The horns swap places. Slick becomes a devil-person, and Sleaze loses the horns. Maybe Slick cares; by this point he might be so far gone that it doesn't effect him. Then it's up to Sleaze to convince his real-world self to take off Those Fucking Glasses and actually look at what he's doing to the people around him. Cue internal moral struggle.
